Special Issue on Fifteen Years of Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior


This is an important date considering the importance of BJMB contributing to disseminating important knowledge and the researchers’ work in the motor behavior area. The BJMB was launched with its first edition published in December of 2006. Thus in 2021, we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of BJMB.

Articles in the present special issue discuss changes in the motor behavior area in these past 15 years, argue about theoretical paradigms in motor development, motor learning, and motor control, show interesting findings related to walking and eye movements, and explore new ways for teaching in the motor behavior area. As a result, here is a rich combination of themes related to motor behavior presented in 14 articles disclosed in this commemorative issue.

Guest Editors 

Dr Fabio A. Barbieri (São Paulo State University - Unesp, Bauru - SP, Brazil)

Dr José A. Barela (São Paulo State University - Unesp, Rio Claro - SP, Brazil)

Dr Natalia M. Rinaldi (Federal University of Espírito Santo - UFES, Vitória - ES, Brazil

Peer-review process

The editorial review process followed the BJMB's peer-review guidelines. The manuscripts were handled by the guest editor that invited at least two independent reviewers for a double-blind review.
